UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 4/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 17/I/15 (2013-688)
Pretty cloudy amber beige beer, irregular off-white dense head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, ripe sweet fruits, pineapple, honey, bit sugary, some caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, toast, citrus, bit dusty, quite some alcohol, fruity. Aftertaste: dry and bitter hops, citrus, some alcohol, toasted malts, bit of honey, almonds, alcohol is pretty noticeable, but still itís a very nice beer. I love the fruitiness in this one!
